I got yet another blue screen with my new laptop and the tech support guy said the system operating files were corrupted and I need to do system restore and if that doesn't work mail laptop back for repair. So I am saving my important stuff, which isn't much, to cds now. What I'm thinking of doing is waiting till it dies or I get blue screen again, then doing what he said as it's under warranty for another 8 months?
Also is there a way to save all my favorites, the sites I have bookmarked without manually writing them done one by one? Thanks

2) Right-click the drive you want to perform a check disk on (Drvie C) and select Properties.
3) Click the Tools tab in the drive Properties window
4) Click Check Now under error checking.
5) To perform a complete check of your hard drive for errors check off both options in the check disk window that pops up
6) Click the Start button to start the process.
7) If you are trying to check a hard drive that has open files youíll get a message , Click Schedule disk check. Disk check canít check a hard drive that has open files.
Your computer will reboot and check the disk before Windows Vista boots up.
